The warning has been issued from the British National Pig Association, “A world shortage of pork and bacon next year is now unavoidable.” First, who knew there was a British National Pig Association, and second, heaven help us bacon lovers! Yup, remember how we have been having that drought and people were worried about corn prices impacting beef? Well, cows don’t really eat corn, but guess which animal does? Yup, the piggy. So with the drop in supply of corn, and soybean for that matter, the stories tell how farmers have been thinning their herds, especially in Europe, and with less pigs come a shortage in bacon, and even worse, an increase in prices.
We in the United States won’t really have to worry about finding bacon, as the American National Pork Board (Again, who knew?) says we won’t really have a shortage of baconny goodness, but with our increasing demand for all food bacon and the shortage of actual pigs to make said bacon, you can expect prices to go up. Me, I like bacon, but in moderation, however, football tailgaters will have to up their budget if they want to maintain their waistlines, and so I plight: Are you concerned about the upcoming bacon shortage?
That’s it for this plight! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
